What causes indoor air pollution?

Many everyday things may cause inferior indoor air quality in your Kitchener home.

This includes:

  • Compounds in [flooring, furniture and drapes that let off fumes
  • Cleaning products
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are usually more efficient, updated homes don’t have fresh air the way older houses do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and outside air out. This provides more energy savings, but the decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create pollutants accumulating inside.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is suggested. Ventilation systems exchange polluted interior air for fresher outside air without compromising energy savings.
